Obama's "Fix" is a 'Flop': Federal HIPAA law already prohibits insurance companies from cancelling policies when they are sick!Topics: Political News and commentaries
The man just can't help himself from sounding like the village idiot. He clearly knows almost nothing of what he speaks and has no compunction from lying.
In his speech today, once again he clearly lied about insurance companies cancelling plans when people were sick or had already filed claims!
From The Washington Times:
[...] In an interview with The Washington Times, C. Steven Tucker, a health insurance and Obamacare expert in Illinois, explains that the HIPAA law section 2742 (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) does not permit these insurance policies to be cancelled. It has been illegal since 1997 to cancel someone's health insurance coverage when you are sick or when you have claims.Much more here.
During the original fight to pass the Obamacare law, Democrats frequently paraded people across press conference stages to explain that they had lost their individual health insurance policies when they became sick. These same lawmakers evidently failed to recognize that what those insurance companies were doing was already illegal.
